Cramming Down Business Debt Through Bankruptcy

Clermont Business Debt Lawyer

In the uncertain economy, business owners are struggling to keep costs down, pay vendors and continue to make a profit on operations. When business debts become overwhelming, the future of your business may seem bleak. Remember that you do have options and you do have rights, even when your business is struggling and you cannot repay your debts.

I am Merideth Nagel, an experienced Clermont, Florida Business Debt Relief Attorney dedicated to helping my clients reorganize their debt. Under Chapter 11, you have the option to “cram down” debts and reorganize your financial assets, debts and property.

‘Cram Down’ Debt and Payment of Creditors

When confirming a bankruptcy plan, creditors are divided into classes and each class has the opportunity to vote on your plan for reorganization. If one or more of the creditor “classes” vote against your plan, you can still get your reorganization plan approved through the process of a “cram down.”

How Does a Cram Down Work?

Under a cram down, business owners (or individuals who have purchased investment property) can cram down investment property to present fair market value, readjusting the principal to reflect current value. After bankruptcy is filed, a repayment plan will be established. As your attorney, I will review your individual circumstances, help you determine if you are eligible, determine a fair market value and help you restore your credit after filing bankruptcy.
